Mini Aquaponics Kit

I assemble this mini kit to try out possibilities whether it is useful for classroom.



I use off the shelf gardening container, the rectangular plastic. 
These was the container I use for various testing of siphon during early stage of my Aquaponics quest.


The siphon is a smaller unit of my valve, I am using 15mm stand pipe with 32mm adapter on the end house in a plastic tumbler with cap on the mouth.
Bottom of the tumbler I drill 1 big hole for the stand pipe threaded adapter and around the side I drill few holes all round for water inlet.
Stand pipe drilled with 4mm weep hole, for normal operation of my valve. 4 mm is just nice, smaller than this clogged easily.


Above photo you can see the tumbler with cap. I am testing this, next hydroton will be filling the container and try some plants.
I need to see how it will survive the prolong usage.


Water inlet is adjusted to minimum possible, equivalent to a 4 watt pump and its flushing and cutting off without problem.
Below a short video of the mini kit flushing and cut off. Apologise for the hammering background noise. The neighbour doing their house.



Cheers
